The Economy  Madam Speaker, I know personally that I could maybe lose five or 10, but when it comes to that member's question if they really want to help Canadians they would stop the filibuster in this chamber today. They could show up for work and make sure that the budget implementation act passes and that supports get to Canadians who need them.

The Economy  Madam Speaker, if the Conservatives read the budget, they would see that there are measures to make sure that we reduce spending by $15 billion over the next years. Also, in the budget implementation act, we would be able to make sure that Canada worker benefits go to Canadians faster.

Carbon Pricing  Madam Speaker, I will answer the substantive matter of the member's question, but I want to take us back seven years ago and a day to when, for the first time in Canadian history, we raised the pride flag on Parliament Hill. We made history. We stood up for Canadians. Members from the House and members from the Senate were on the lawn of Parliament to do that very thing.

Carbon Pricing  Madam Speaker, the hon. member opposite knows full well that if he wants to make life more affordable for Canadians, the Conservatives need only stop filibustering and simply support our budget implementation bill, which will ease the cost of living for Canadians. As for the price on pollution, I recommend that people look at the Conservatives' 2021 election platform.

Carbon Pricing  Madam Speaker, this question touches on several things and there is very little time. I will answer what I can. The former parliamentary budget officer, Kevin Page, clearly said that our budget is very balanced, very responsible and will not create inflation in Canada. The Conservatives' election platform states, “We will assess progress...to set...carbon prices on a path to $170/tonne”.

Business of the House  Mr. Speaker, this is the first time that I have had the honour to share with our very dear colleagues in the House the message concerning the Thursday question. I am very pleased to answer my colleague. As members know, Bill C-47, the budget implementation act, was reported from committee yesterday, so we will call it for the final stages of debate starting tomorrow and then continue early next week on Monday and Tuesday.

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, I quote from the 2021 Conservative Party platform. It says, “Our plan will ensure that all Canadians can do their part to fight climate change, in the way that works best for them, and at a carbon price that is affordable...increasing to $50/tonne”. The document further states, “We will assess progress...

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, we have to roll the tape back, because not once, not twice, not three times, but five times in just the last year the Conservatives have had the opportunity to reduce taxes on Canadians. However, what did they do? Every single time we vote to reduce taxes on Canadians, how do they vote?

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, let me say that we know that junk fees are predatory and they are hidden fees that Canadians see on their phone bills, services and concert tickets. It is particularly galling in the tourism industry when we see these hidden fees come up for visitors. That is why our government is taking action to crack down on junk fees, including unexpected hidden and additional fees, to continue to ensure that businesses are transparent with prices and to make life more affordable for Canadians.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, just on the tax credits for clean electricity alone, businesses would get the maximum credit allowed by making sure that they have union workers on the job site and that they are paying prevailing wages. This was work done by the Alberta Federation of Labour and other building trades across the country.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, everybody deserves to be represented and to be treated fairly in our legal system. The fact that our government is making investments in legal aid demonstrates that we believe in that principle and that we are here to work with individuals who need that help when they are facing legal proceedings.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, the answer is manifold. We understand that Canadians are struggling, and that is why we are providing the grocery rebate. It is going to help 11 million Canadians. Let me give some numbers. The average family will receive $467, while single Canadians will receive $264.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, whether it is Gros Morne National Park, Banff National Park or Jasper, the fact is that budget 2023 includes $158 million for the visitor economy, $50 million for Destination Canada, $108 million for regional development agencies and $1.8 billion for the transportation sector.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, it is a pleasure to participate in today's debate in committee of the whole. Our government is well aware that we are living in difficult times, in a difficult world. The world is going through a difficult time, and the impacts of outside forces are affecting the lives of Canadians.

Business of Supply  Mr. Chair, we have been honest with Canadians. The short-term outlook for the global economy is not great. Financing conditions have tightened, and the negative economic impact of Vladimir Putin's illegal and unjust invasion of Ukraine continues to be felt. Such moments present political leaders with a choice, and in this House, the choice and the contrast is clear: Conservatives believe it is in their political interest to tell Canadians that everything is broken and that they should give up hope.
